It has been a mild winter here in Alberta. We have really taken advantage of the frequent chinooks that have blown in! The doggies have spent SO much time enjoying the outside! However, cold winter temperatures can make us all feel a little stir-crazy! Looking for some indoor activities for you and your Pomsky? We have lots of ideas to share!
a) Grooming! - Get out the brush and give them a head to paw fur make-over! It helps with collection of dead hairs, eliminates any tangles and is relaxing for both you and your pooch!
b) Tricks, Tricks, Tricks! – Why not brush up on some obedience commands? Sit, Stay, Come! Or, teach a new trick! Here are some of our favourites and most are great crowd pleasers! Shake a paw, Spin (to the Right), Spin (to the Left), Play Dead, Beg, High Five, Bow and balancing a treat on the snout!
c) Join an Agility Club! Agility can be taught in an indoor arena, which is perfect for potential winter blues! Agility is not only mentally and physically rewarding for your dog, it is beyond fun for both of you!
d) Treats, Treats, Treats! -Low calorie treats and toys with rewards are great for mentally stimulating your Pomsky! Making your pup work for a reward is a great way to pass the time. Treat balls, or toys with pockets or openings can be packed full of tiny, low calorie treats! Watch your Pomsky engage their sense of smell and paw-eye coordination while they work for their treats.
